Sammy (9233) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2011
On tap at Cole’s. Cloudy yellow, lacey. As initially served too cold, it does not improve that much as rises to room temperature. Good drinkability, medium mouthfeel, very saison yeasty aroma. Malted, but not very complex.

over aged, too much bread and wet cardboard. Tastes like an overaged tripel. Underneath is some floral notes and Belgian candy notes. Definitely one to taste fresh
